Awakeness Practices

All 84,000 Khandas As Found in the Pali Suttas

certainly the Buddha taught a large number of practices that lead to
Awakeness. This web page attempts to catalogue those found in the Pali
Suttas (DN, MN, SN, AN, Ud & Sn

The
discourses of Buddha are divided into 84,000, as to separate addresses.
The division includes all that was spoken by Buddha.”I received from
Buddha,” said Ananda, “82,000 Khandas, and  from
the priests 2000; these are 84,000 Khandas maintained by me.” They are
divided into 275,250, as to the stanzas of the original text, and into

Verse 106. The Greatest
Offering

Month
by month for a hundred years
a thousand one might sacrifice,
but if for only a moment one
might honour the self-developed,
such honour were better by far
than century of sacrifice.

Explanation:
One may make sacrifice every month for a hundred years; but, the honoured paid
to one spiritually developed person, for a moment, is greater than oblations
made for a hundred years.

Dhammapada Verse 106
Sariputtattherassa Matula Brahmana Vatthu

Mase
mase sahassena1
yo vajetha satam samam
ekanca bhivatattanam
muhuttamapi pujaye
sa yeva pujana seyyo
yance vassasatam hutam.

Verse
106: Month after month for a hundred years, one may make offerings (to ordinary
people) to the value of a thousand Kahapanas; yet if, only for a moment
one pays homage to a bhikkhu who has practised Insight Development, this homage
is, indeed, better than a hundred years of making offerings (to ordinary
people).


1. sahassa:
one thousand; in this context, one thousand kahapanas. A kahapana
coin can be in copper, silver or gold.


The
Story of Thera Sariputta’s Uncle

While
residing at the Veluvana monastery, the Buddha uttered Verse (106) of this
book, with reference to a brahmin, who was the maternal uncle of Thera
Sariputta.

On one
occasion, Thera Sariputta asked his uncle the brahmin whether he was doing any
meritorious deeds. The brahmin answered that he was making offerings to the
value of one thousand Kahapanas every month to the Nigantha ascetics,
hoping to get to the Brahma world in his next existence. Thera Sariputta then
explained to him that his teachers had given him false hopes and that they
themselves did not know the way to the Brahma world. So saying, he took his
uncle the brahmin to the Buddha, and requested the Buddha to expound the
Dhamma, which would surely take one to the Brahma world.

The
Buddha said to the brahmin, “Brahmin, an offering of a spoonful of
alms-food to a bhikkhu would be much better than your present offering of one
thousand Kahapanas to your teachers.”

Then
the Buddha spoke in verse as follows:


Verse 106: Month after
month for a hundred years, one may make offerings (to ordinary people) to the
value of a thousand Kahapanas; yet if, only for a moment one pays
homage to a bhikkhu who has practised Insight Development, this homage is,
indeed, better than a hundred years of making offerings (to ordinary people).

At the
end of the discourse, the brahmin, who was the maternal uncle of Thera
Sariputta, attained Sotapatti Fruition.
